Emergency Preparedness (WMAlerts)

If you are looking for the page where all WakeMed employee inclement weather and emergency information is posted, then you have found it!  At this time, all WakeMed facilities are operating under normal operations and there is no extreme weather information to report.  If that changes, the information will be continuously updated here. 

You also may reach this page directly by typing www.wakemed.org/wmalerts into your browser and you may email us with information about closings/delays that need to be shared throughout the system or with the public. 

Additionally, we have posted some helpful information below to ensure you and your family are prepared for the next emergency event. 

There are several ways to stay informed about the weather and how it impacts you as an employee. You are welcome to use any or all of them:

  • Talk to your supervisor or manager.
  • Log into your WakeMed email.
  • Visit this page on www.wakemed.org/wmalerts
  • Sign up to receive WMAlerts text messages by texting “Follow WMAlerts” to 40404.
